It's Friday the 13th. "So what? ", you ask. Well, a lot of people take this sort of thing very seriously. Consider this, More than 80% of hotels and high-rise buildings do not have a 13th floor. You hardly ever see the number 13 in an elevator. Athletes, who are notoriously superstitious, often ask for another number other than 13 on their jerseys. Many airports do not have a Gate 13. Hospitals regularly avoid having a Room 13. In Italy, they omit the number 13 from their national lottery. Many cities do not have a 13th Street or a 13th Avenue. In France, socialites known as “quatorziens” (or “fourteeners”) once made themselves available to keep a dinner party from having 13 guests. The ill-fated Apollo 13 mission to the moon was launched on April 13th at 13:13 local time.
